Implementing e-business requires a dynamic approach that can respond to changes in technology, management direction, customer and supplier behavior, and competition. Many traditional project management methods don't work with e-business. This book presents proven real world management methods that are adaptive, dynamic, and flexible in an e-business environment. It tackles the central issues of e-business: the burgeoning market for "buy-side" extranet/Internet procurement and supply chain management/business-to-business, Web-based transactions.
Audience: Dynamic E-Business Implementation Management is written for people who need to make technology and the Internet into part of their core competence.
Implementing E-Business successfully means that you will have the following goals.
Versus Traditional Project Management
Project management started as informal guidelines and practices. As time passed, it grew more formal with information gathering, data analysis, and management reporting following sets of standard procedures. This reached extremes in many IT and engineering organizations where people were assigned full time to carry out the mechanics of project management.
Project management in some cases lost direction. The old standard formal methods of project management did not fit the nature of modern projects. The methods did not take advantage of new software tools and technology. Here are some differences that expand on the chart in the preface.
